Petronor has invested 58 million euros in the general stoppage of the Coke Planta (URF), as well as the Vacuum Unit of the Conversion area and other units in this area, meaning the shutdown of 50% of the total activity of the refining installations.

From the point of view of employment and generation of economic activity, 40 companies have been hired (50% being Basque) to carry out the different tasks, placing more than 1,000 employees at Petronor's disposal every day, with peak days requiring up to 1,400 employees. All workers, both the habitual Petronor workforce and temporary workers, received specific safety training.
